Founded in January 2022, RicoLayer Events started as a passion project for Roneka Jones, founder, creative director and lead event coordinator.
The name "RicoLayer" is a playful combination of a teenage nickname and our company values.
Rico was Roneka's high school nickname. The Layer in RicoLayer Events comes from the sentiment that the events are meant to be layered to create impact and form genuine human connections.
Rico began this journey somewhat inadvertently. She found her calling in hosting potlucks and birthday celebrations for friends.
What was once a hobby (or favors for friends and family) is now a mission to create and serve a community in Sacramento.
we focus on game nights, MeetUps and other forms of community engagement.
Our origin and our journey are all about bringing people together, helping them establish genuine human connections and serving them well.
We hope to grow further, bringing more people together and building an awesome community.
More than becoming the go-to event planning company, we aim to create a Sacramento community, one event at a time.
Our events and customer service are all rooted in our values and beliefs. Our story began as one of passion and unity, so we do everything in our power to let it continue that way.
We are a company whose mission is to make your event full of lasting memories. From the decorations to the performers, we help you build an event you won't want to forget.
Our wide range of event services ensures you have exactly the event you want. From virtual events to intimate in-person gatherings, we work with your vision to give you everything you're looking for.
RicoLayer Events is founded on the values of providing exceptional customer service and building community.
We aim to redefine the standard for services an event planner can provide with our customized, no-fluff approach.
Our mission is to ensure client and attendee satisfaction and retention as we provide private event services and community engagement through virtual and in-person event service that inspires genuine human connection and stronger bonds for families, friends, and workplace units.
We celebrate you, and what makes you special!
Born and raised in Kansas City, Roneka moved to California in 2017 to become a National Service Member for CalSERVES (an AmeriCorps program in Napa County).
While living in Napa County, she fell in love with Sac-town culture. After two years of National Service, she knew she would move to Sacramento to be part of the city’s culture. And so she did, in 2019.
In her own words,
"For me, the art, beer, and events culture was the pull that solidified my plans post-national service. It was a no-brainer. I’m here now and I plan on making Sacramento my home for as long as possible."
Roneka loves quality time with her family and friends - watching movies or enjoying the outdoors.
She's also very keen on hiking, competing in 5k races, visiting breweries, and having game nights - shocker right?
